If you go to the homepage there's a few sponsors of the site in the left side column *coughcough*

2 general rules I have on hosting:
1. Stay away from 1and1 if you need support (which are going to need eventually)
2. If they offer 100% uptime, stay away.

I have been using Startlogic (one of the sponsors) for over two years for 5 different sites. Have had excellent results and very responsive support when needed. They have Linux w/PHP as well as windows servers. Highly recommend (at least by me).

hmm... maybe I should put together a member recommended list of hosting companies (hat offer a finders fee for DWC).. would be a nice way of changing red number for this website to green ones.. Hosting companies usually pay well for leads.

sounds like a good idea if it helps to pay for this forum. if you write a proposal I would be happy to send it to a couple and see what they say.

Ed, what were you thinking of when you say 'proposal'? I'm interested.
I was thinking of a page where we list a couple of hosting companies that is in use by members, and thus gotten a kind of 'approval'.

i would send an email out asking if they have a referal fee

I did this when my mate asked me to source his car. I got him a cracking deal and earned 100 beer tokens at the same time
